This course is designed for learners who may do little or no exercise.  Over the course of nine weeks we will take you from couch potato to completing a five kilometre parkrun event.  Using the NHS Couch to 5K Scheme you will gradually progress to develop both your fitness and running technique alongside other beginners.  The qualified leaders will provide plenty of support and encouragement to help you along the way and no-one is ever left behind!  Please wear comfortable footwear and clothing for these sessions and if you have any health concerns which may impact on your ability to undertake this course please check with your GP before booking.
